Landed can be modeled for other needs
I was greatly encouraged to read about Bellevue School District’s partnership with Landed, a company that is assisting educators who want to own a home.
I am sure BSD superintendent, staff members, teachers and counselors who work directly with the Family Connection Centers are aware that there are almost 300 children whoare homeless from preschool to high schools. Their families are not able to keep up with the high cost of increasing rent, and the children are struggling at school because not enough food is available for them.
The question in my mind is how can BSD partner with rental agencies to provide single family units at affordable rent?
Nonprofit community services like Muslim Community Resource Center, Catholic Community Services, Jewish Family Services and Hopelink can offer rental assistance based on their individual programs.
